Btw, believe it or not, but ‘schmitles’ isn’t a word. 😮 Crazy right? I made it alllll up. *GASP*
Anyway, this works on a few levels. One, I had no idea what else to name this, and two, the post is TALKING about titles, go figure! x)
Sooo… sorry it’s been like, a week. But I guess lots of things only update once a week, so I shouldn’t stress so much, right? This past week was just crazy–I worked a lot, and everyone was leaving to go back to school, so my free time was spent hanging out with my homies before they’re all gone! (sadface) Birthday parties, shopping, yada yada… Yeah. BUT HERE I AM! I wouldn’t forget you guys. ❤
Plus, there’s this title thing that I would LOVE some opinions on!!
Basically, I’m waffling on the title of my book. I know, I know, finishing it would probably be the best place to start, but that will come sooner or later. And when it does, I need to actually know what to name it. Not that Life of Gaia hasn’t grown on me, but I’m just not sure. It still reminds me a lot of ‘Life of Pi’, or whatever. Although the other idea I’m tossing back and forth, which isn’t that different, ALSO reminds me of a title. Maybe I just can’t win. Plus there’s the fact that ‘Gaia’ seems to be in a lot of book titles these days. Urgh.
Anyway, so, I just sort of need some opinions. I figure either The Life of Gaia, or, the other idea I’ve been thinking of, which is The Second Life of Gaia. (It makes sense with the book, trust me.) I’m thinking that if it were written out on the cover of the book, it ‘Second’ would be kind of in parenthesis, like The (Second) Life of Gaia or something like that.
Is that dumb??
I don’t even know anymore. I feel like I’m so close to this I can’t look at any of it objectively anymore. Dx URGH. It’s like in my art classes when they would always warn you to step back and look at your art from a few feet away every once in awhile, ’cause if you’re all up in your work you can only see bits of it, but you have to look at the whole picture and make sure it still looks good, you know? But I feel like it’s totally impossible for me to do that right now, HENCE my asking you people!
Would you rather buy a book called The Life of Gaia?
Or would something called The (Second) Life of Gaia be more intriguing?
Do they both just remind you too much of that Pi book?
Do they BOTH sound terrible, and I just need to scrap them all?
Do you even care? @___@
I figure I need to figure this out now, ’cause I don’t want to get too far down the road with this book without knowing exactly what I’m calling it. That’s just terrible marketing, you know.
ANYWHO, thanks for your opinions–they’re so helpful! 🙂
